REDCap is a mature, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Using REDCap's streamlined process for rapidly developing projects, you may create and design projects using:
- The online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or
- The offline method by constructing a 'data dictionary' template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap.
Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.
REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading and calculated fields. Its recruitment use is to create screening surveys and e-consents.
For an overview of its features and some quick video tutorials of REDCap in action, please see the Training Resources page.
NOTICE: If you are collecting data for the purposes of human subjects research, review and approval of the project is required by your Institutional Review Board.
